Winslow Homer: Breezing Up, 16" Canvas Print, Unframed

About the Artist

Beginning with the Civil War and throughout his career, Winslow Homer (1836–1910) insightfully recorded the sweeping panorama of American life. Homer’s dynamic compositions and strong sense of design, color, and light inflected his subjects with a psychological truthfulness that was unprecedented in American art and introduced a new realism into what had been an overly sentimental tradition of genre painting. While quintessentially American, his work also paralleled such developments in European art as impressionism and embodied universal themes that transcended national concerns.

Winslow Homer's Breezing Up (A Fair Wind) (1873–1876) is reproduced on an unframed canvas for a minimalist look that is very popular right now.


The sea, which would dominate Homer’s late work, began to assume a role in his paintings in 1873, when he summered at Gloucester, Massachusetts. Breezing Up was exhibited to popular and critical acclaim in 1876, and has become one of the best-known and most beloved artistic images of life in 19th-century America.
